Foul Odor From AC w 500x333 Do You Experience A Bad Odor When You Start Your Car?

The air coming out of your car’s A/C vents feels pleasant because as the warm air passes through the evaporator, the moisture as well as the heat are removed before delivering it to the cabin.

When the A/C system is in use it produces condensation that collects inside the a/c housing. The combination of water and Texas heat creates an environment that allows mold and fungus to produce and multiply in and around your evaporator core.  The air from your blower motor forces air across this surface and out through the vents in your dash, floor, and defroster.  This results in the “dirty sock” like odor you smell when you first start your car and turn on your air conditioner.
